The documentary The Illusion of Abundance is showing at the 15th Millenium Film Festival in Brussels on the 28th of March.
Carolina, Bertha and Maxima are hunting down some misbehaving corporation in the EU or the USA. Despite a deeply unbalanced game, these three women share a common goal: they are leading today’s fight against modern conquistadors.
Whereas governments and corporations, trapped in a global race towards unlimited growth, need to get the cheapest raw materials, Bertha, Carolina and Maxima tell us a story of tireless courage: how to keep fighting to protect nature when your life is at risk? When police repression, corporate harassment, injuries or even death threats are part of your daily routine?
THE ILLUSION OF ABUNDANCE, by filmmakers ERIKA GONZALEZ RAMIREZ & MATTHIEU LIETAERT is not only a film about those who pay the high price of ‘development’ and ‘progress’, it is above all a film about the globalization of their environmental resistance and their conviction to hunt down misbehaving transnational corporations, wherever they hide.
